It’s last call for Ariel Palitz and her Sutra Lounge. The news arrived yesterday evening with an announcement that its tenth anniversary – September 10 – will double as the grand finale. And for some, it can’t come soon enough. In 2005, the nightclub was considered one of Manhattan’s noisiest bars, and still holds a record 659 calls to 311.

Ten years here at the nexus of First and First. Palitz is pulling out the stops. For the next month leading up to the farewell, Sutra is bringing back past DJ performers for parties during the weekdays and weekends. Tonight Show bandleader, and Roots drummer, Questlove will be spinning tracks on the final evening.

More from the mailbag:

After an incredible run, Sutra Lounge has chosen to close its doors on our 10th Anniversary next month. For the entire month of August and into September we will be celebrating by bringing back some of our greatest DJs and parties during the week and on the weekends. NOW is the time to celebrate with us until our 10 Year Anniversary & Grand Finale on Wednesday, Sept 10th, 2014 with ?uestlove, Tony Touch & special guests. We are still open to take reservations for birthdays and private parties between now and then.

The co-owners of Mercury Bar and Tonic East in Murray Hill (Keith McKeon and Kevin Caulfield) are taking the reins here at 16 First Avenue, as previously reported. They’re planning to open a “sports-themed” bar-restaurant with some 12 TVs. We all know what to expect. Community Board 3 approved the sale of assets last month, yet without the vote of Palitz, who sits on the SLA subcommittee.
